Providence Mayor Boasts No New Taxes In Budget Proposal

Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza says his fiscal year 2019 budget does not include any new taxes for the fourth consecutive year.  Elorza proposed the 745-million-dollar budget at City Hall on Tuesday.  He said the budget also includes more than three-million-dollars for the city's rainy day fund once again, and it marks the fourth consecutive year the city will be making 100-percent pension payments.  The budget is calling for 20-million-dollars to be borrowed in bonds for improvements to school buildings.
